Water-based Art Event in London

'Drift 2010' is under way in London with contemporary art events taking place along the river Thames. Following 'Drift 2008', this year's highlights include a spectacular work by German artist Julius Popp titled 'bit.fall': a waterfall of cascading words from live news feeds, situated near the Tate Modern gallery.

Participatory works include 'To the World's End' by Frank Bolter. On November 2nd, with the help of public volunteers, an origami boat was folded and set sail down the river. 'Drift 2010' will continue until January 11th 2010. For more information about forthcoming events, the artists involved, and images and videos from past works, visit the website
